If the ring were just a tad wider, this would be perfect. It stretches very wide just as advertised, however the larger it has to stretch the more pressure it exerts which makes for an uncomfortably intense squeeze in my experience. I'm hoping the material will loosen up a little over time.
The ring absolutely stretches, but the amount of force involved in that stretch is pretty strong, and the "resting" size is a bit tighter than I had hoped for.
Like others have said, I'm average sized, maybe even a bit on the smaller side of average. As a cock ring newbie, I think I would have liked either more stretch or a larger rest size.
I've only used it once time, so I'll have to see if more use changes my mind.
Note: use this with lube, and be prepared to use both hands to get it on. It can be uncomfortable getting so the balls through if you're only stretching one handed.
That said, I think I liked the overall sensation and I'll at least give it a few more goes.
I'm not sure what's going on with the people saying these don't stretch. It's the most stretchy and comfortable cock ring I've ever used. I have comfortably worn it for hours and my package is on the large side and balls are huge. It did break after several months but that could be due to using silicone lube with it.
jumping in to this new experience and i have to tell you this "beginner" ring has no play or stretch at all which was the whole point of getting it. it looks and feels great but I am not sure what I am going to do with it if I cant get it on.
We're so sorry to hear this item has given you problems! Are you sure it was the Super Soft C-Ring you tried? They are quite stretchy - we've gotten them to fit around a Coffee Can. Perhaps you meant the Beginner C-ring?
In that case, the Beginner C-ring is not meant to have stretch in it; the diameter at 2' extra wide to allow someone new to firm C-rings to try out the sensation.
Different from stretchy rings, firm rings have to be put on while flaccid - pulling the lubed shaft and both testicles through before becoming erect. Once someone has become comfortable with the sensation of putting on & wearing the ring, they can move down in size, which causes greater constriction as well as being more difficult to put on. (Noting that some wearers will choose the Int/Adv sizes initially for a better fit).
I hope that clears some confusion up!
Never used one of these before the day it showed up. Easy enough for me to put on and remove. Like I said, I'm new to this, so there was a little discomfort, but no harm. Overall I'm pleased with the "super soft c-ring:tm:" and the shopping experience here. :)
My wife and I absolutely love the Advanced C-Ring. The Intermediate works better for my size for all day wear. We do use silicone lube because of how long it lasts and that does eventually cause the c-ring to stretch and swell. But I like the c-ring so much, I'm okay with that... I'm on my 5th one! Please please consider making a "double wide" version. That would be awesome! Thank you so much!
High quality product. Truly comfortable enough to wear all day.
Some are critical of the elasticity (lack of). I think that is this ring's best feature. A ring does not have to constrict blood flow, or squeeze into your flesh to work. As I expand inside the ring it does not give. That makes keeping extra hard super easy.
There are a lot of myths about what a cock ring is supposed to do. And a lot of misunderstanding about how to put it on. If it is so tight that it forces you to get an erection, then it may not be entirely safe, and might leave a mark. (or a rash)
This product is totally safe. This product is very well made.
How to use:
If your testicles are already lifted and your penis is already hard; try this some other time. Relax.
Give your scrotum a gentle stretch. Pull some skin through the loop. One at a time the testes go through. Give those guys enough skin on the other side, and you don't need any lube. Rock your hips back, pull the ring forward. Push the tip of your penis back to get it started through. Lube makes this more comfortable, but it is not necessary. Adjust yourself. You know how to do that surely. With a ring like this you should feel no pinching or pulling on the skin.
I have used a lot of different types and brands. I have experimented with a lot of materials from jelly plastic to steel. The products TANTUS makes are the best. Please don't criticize that which you do not understand.
impossible to put on! I am average size and defiantly not any bigger. what a waste of money.
I'm sorry to hear that the Beginner Ring did not fit as expected. C-rings can be very useful and simple toys for extended and more intense play, but being unable to use a toy as intended is extremely frustrating.
Perhaps the SuperSoft Rings would be an easier place to start, as their stretchiness allows them to be used at any time, with or without an erection. Unlike the SuperSoft Rings, however, the Beg/Int/Adv rings are most easily put on before a full erection: lube on the inner side of the ring, then 1 testicle, 2 testicles, and finally the penis pulled through.
Although not as simple as the Super Soft Rings, the thicker rings are designed to be worn by at least an average sized user and up with varying degrees of constriction. It may simply take a few tries to wear it comfortably.
I hope that with a little practice, you can enjoy your Beginner ring!

This is a follow up review as I couldn't figure out how to edit my existing review now that I have had several couples and solo sessions. The C-sling performs better than the Advanced ring. It felt better, extended my size, orgasm, and range, and the shield shape added an element of fun for my wife and I.
These devices do take more effort than the stretchy rings ,so I know some people hate them. But my wife and I love that you can wear these for extended periods comfortably and the material is unmatched.
What I typically would do is lube the ring and manly parts, pull on the scrotum to draw the first testicle through, gently nudge the second testicle from underneath, and push and pull the flaccid penis through. Use a dry washrag to overcome the slipperiness pulling.
Unlike the ring, I found the shield does gets in the way for the second testicle, requiring prolonged prodding and angling (hence my initial lower review). But when my wife was waiting I found a means to quicken the process.
I have all sizes of the C-rings. When I accidentally tossed my advanced (preferred) ring during cleanup, I thought I would try this sling instead. I found it more difficult to place despite a slightly larger opening. The tongue obstructed the ability to shove up and left less a sense once it's through it's through. It does set the testicles high if you want them out there.
My partner and I have used this toy, and we loved the feeling of the silicone itself, which we always do with Tantus products. For us the fit was perfect, where it stayed in the upright position no matter our positioning, which has been a hard thing to find with c-rings! Our only problem we had with it, was the button to turn the bullet on and off was pretty difficult to push, you had to use your nail to actually turn it on and off. The bullet also wasnt the strongest, but we fixed both of these issues by just taking out the bullet and switching it with one of our other favorite bullets that was stronger. And the nice part of the ring is the part that holds the bullet can stretch to hold a different bullet, or if you really want can just be removed and used as a c-ring on its own because it really is just that comfortable!
Love hearing how much you and your partner enjoy the Vibrating Super Soft C-Ring. I apologize that the vibe was so difficult to start, it's design does require a bit more of a push to get it on and off. We often recommend unscrewing the top and pushing it on from within; still a bit cumbersome I realize. I am glad you have found such a great alternative and I so appreciate you sharing it here so others can see it and try this out too! Thank you for being such an amazing Tantus customer and fan! :)
The vibrating part of the ring only worked for one session and has not worked since.
I apologize that the vibe on your Super Soft C-Ring is already not working. Please consider reaching out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org so I can assist you with this. I hope to hear from you. :)
I own all the three C-Rings. These are the highest quality rings I have used. You can wear them comfortably for much longer than a thin stretchable one that restricts down on you. My lover is very sensitive to the plastics and prefers high end silicone lubes. These have caused no irritation and have lasted with proper cleaning / care. You do have to try them out ahead of time to get comfortable with taking them on and off. If you are not comfortable with this,do not get the advanced. I use the beginner when in a rush. But I prefer the advanced whenever possible.
